Can we also get approximate dimensions of the horizontal climbing wall portion (width, length, height)? The horizontal climbing wall will be approximately 96" x 96" (two 4'x8' sheets of plywood/OSB/similar) with a rise in the center of no more than 6" (not counting obstacle elements) extending late...

jwatte, per your recommendation, there is officially a 36" minimum clearance between barrels, but not from a barrel to the hay-bale wall. The size, shape, placement, and density of the elements on the horizontal climbing wall is as-of-yet undefined. However, the elements will likely consist of scrap...
